Sanctuary Animals

BLES is home to an ever-changing menagerie of animals — each one arrives with their own story of abuse and neglect. Some of the animals have found their own way to the Sanctuary, while Katherine and Anon have discovered others serendipitously.

Demonstrating respect and the belief that each animal has the right to a secure life, BLES truly personifies its name by offering chances to all beings in need.
